Great question! A therapeutic level = the amount of an ingredient required for it to have the desired effect.

With many supplements, the responsibility of knowing how much of an ingredient is needed falls squarely on the pet parent. 

Say you see that a product contains glucosamine, and you buy it thinking, “Awesome! I’m totally being proactive about Sparky’s joint health.” In reality, the serving size may have a negligible amount of glucosamine, not nearly enough to make an impact on your pet. 

As Dr. Bessent so poignantly says, 

“The presence of an ingredient is not the same as a therapeutic level of it.”

At Herbsmith, we take that responsibility off of your shoulders. We guarantee there are therapeutic levels of ingredients in each serving, in every one of our products.
